This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Our guys have been totally neglected with a lack of cool CC for them, so I'm here to rescue the looks of our dudes!

This essential kit provides everything needed for instant hotness and more natural edgyness, with beards, mustache, stubble, brows and even eyelashes!



Stubble is more toned down and natural as the maxis one. Also the shape and edges are more natural.

Iron man is inspired by Tony Stark from Iron Man. It's super groomed and shaped!

Lashes are natural looking eyelashes, that won't make your guy look like he's been playing around with mommy's mascara!



Mini is a piece of that super-cool Harley Davidson/Gimli -beard a guy dreams of, but can't grow it because of lack of testosterone/ mom won't let/ girlfriend won't allow/ boss would sack you. So here's a little fuzzy dream to make your dudes happy, available in two variations: with and without stubble!

Whisked is a bohemian and laid back style, that doesn't look too wild or un-groomed. It's also available with and without stubble!



The Brows are all lowered, scaled down and further apart, and the shapes are from very tweezed to tamed and bushy and from arched to straight!

Stubble, brows and mustache can be found in beards category, but can't be recolored. Although, as you can see in the pictures, they go with all skincolors great, as they are very naturally colored.
Do Not Replace Any Defaults!
Eyelashes can be found in eyeliners, and brows in eyebrows.
Brows and lashes are for Teen to Elder, and beards for YA to Elder.

I am working on making them recolorable.


CC on models:

Eye replacements by me.
Eye bags by me.
Lipcolor by me.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks so much Arisuka, you are the facial enhancer queen with your eyebags and now thes facial hair for our simmies. My Chace Crawford Sim so needs the lower lashes.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.

Hi Arisuka, thanks so much for all your hard work and for sharing it with us.

Don't let the comments of ungrateful people upset you. They should try and create content themselves if they are not satisfied.

Just remember that for every one person that is ungrateful there are thousands more of us who are so very grateful for the hard work. It just blows my mind that people can be so ungrateful and whiney about stuff that is obviously challenging to create which they receive for free.

Anyway for you and all the other creators out there who are so generous with their creations. Sims would be nothing without you and I for one would not play anymore. :p

Thank you so much. i was seriously peeved when i saw the selection of r the stubble. It's like you either had all or nothing and i like just a litte stubble. Makes me mad that they encluded the stubble with the beards..


Edit: I was meaning the maxis selection, not your. Just encase anyone was confused as to who i was complaining about.. lol Yours are extremly helpful.

I agree, infact, my goatee is completely grey, and I still have my natural color head of hair (haha) with slight streaks of grey of course. But great job! Now, if I can find body hair for men!

You know what I love most about the posted pics is how the main guy looks exactly like Brendan Frasier in Bedazzled.

Its kinda indulgent for yall to be calling some of us ungrateful. I love Arisuka's stuff and I have already thanked her thread, but she has said that she would provide recolorable versions eventually.

I'm just saying, not trying to flame, but don't throw yourselves up on a some huge pedestal of thanks and praise to make us look bad.

Party up in here! BYOO!! Bring Your Own Overalls!!!

Nah, I know that the vast majority of people by far don't want to put me down and discourage me intentionally, what's the sense in that anyway, is it any use if I'll once be really offended and take all my stuff down and never make anything again (and I mean the anonymous hit-and-run blog comments that aren't very constructive)?

I'm not ranking anyone based on what they say and wheter it pleases me or not.

I appreciate all good critique, and to return to the Recoloring, it's impossible to predict the response to a creation, and I wasn't quite prepared to have such demand for recolorable version for the beards. But I'm working on it, I'm not a machine that just poops cool sim-stuff for everyone, and if anyone has ever tried doing CC, IT'S HARD TO LEARN TO DO NEW THINGS.

Enjoy my other facial hair meanwhile, if you are waiting for having purple beards.

I don't think I'll do them for TS2, since I've never made anything for it before.. But if some TS2 creator would like to convert them for it, go ahead.

Yes, you and I both, as a machinima artist Its not good to see "This sux" nor is it any better to see "This is sooo great"

Anyway, that comment wasn't really for you, but Ok, i still <3 u.

I read my comment again and I can't believe how I sounded! I am really sorry if I came off as ungrateful. As a creator I know how it feels to get snooty comments. You don't have to share what you make with anyone but you do. And I appreciate that. Your facial hairs are great! And I like how natural they look. I should have told you that before instead. :D

No, that didn't sound ungrateful, don't worry about it! I'm happy that you like my stuff.

I really want this when it becomes recolorable.
Question: How do you change type of eyelash? Will they be under accersories, hair, eyebrows, ect?

And one more thing:
The model looks like Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man and the son in Home For The Holidays)

Never let a computer know you’re in a hurry.

Do the beards replace the ones in game?

I love facial hair for my Sims. Right now, I don't have many blond or red-haired Sims, so it's okay for me that they aren't recolorable. I can wait for the update. For now, though, I'm very glad to have some facial hair that DOESN'T look strange or awkward. Tahnks!

#50 Old 27th Mar 2010 at 12:34 AM
I think these are totally awesome. Most guys I make are dark skinned so who cares if I can recolor,lol, but...I checked the Instructions where to put them, & when I went into c file, under EA & SIMS3, there was no folder named Mod or Packages...I do have a Downloads folder in the SIM folder in my Documents...in SIMS2 they go there. So is it possible the sinle files go there in SIMS3 as well?
